Allandale Mansion is continuing a decades long tradition this holiday season by opening its doors to the public and letting folks enjoy room after room of Christmas decorations.
The Allandale Mansion Christmas Tours will take place on December 3 (from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.) and on December 4 (from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.). Tickets will be available at the door and are priced as follows:
- Ages 12 and up: $3

The Christmas tours are self-guided and normally take around 30 minutes to an hour. The mansion will have people on hand throughout the house to answer any questions about Allandale and its history.
Harp music will be played on December 3 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. while Santa will pay the mansion a visit on December 4 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Allandale Mansion was built in the early 1950s and donated to the city of Kingsport in 1969 after the death of its owner, Harvey Brooks. The property includes the mansion, two barns, a picnic pavilion, two man-made ponds, the Heron Dome and a 2,000-square-foot amphitheater.

About the City of Kingsport
Founded in 1917, the City of Kingsport (pop. 55,400) is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the eastern U.S. The city is widely known as a planned community, designed by renowned city planner John Nolen and wrapping around the foot of Bays Mountain – a 3,750-acre park, nature preserve, planetarium and observatory. Kingsport is recognized as an International Safe Community by the National Safety Council, a Healthier Tennessee community, and won the 2009 Harvard Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiatives. While many city names are duplicated throughout the U.S., there’s only one Kingsport – a fact that invokes community pride, known locally as the “Kingsport Spirit.”
